(Jan) It’s been a fun, full, busy week for Chuck and I. When we’re not on the seat of our bicycle pedaling around the Foothills we’re off to Joanne’s or spending time with friends. On Tuesday evening Diane and Jim Fisher-Baker and Dan & Jenny Sheppard were at our house. We celebrated Dan’s birthday with Mexican food and Lemon Meringue Pie! Three games of Pegs and Jokers followed with much laughter and lively strategy. The girls won the all important 3rd game!! Yes, I know, that means the guys were 2-1.
Sunday we had headed out to Sidewinder Road to visit our friends the Bennetts, Paynes, Whites and Frints. Jim & Sherry White were headed north in the morning but the rest of us decided to meet for brunch Thursday at the Q Casino one last time. Pictured at the Buffet are Bill & Karen Payne, Karen & Mickey Bennett, Ben & Darlene Frint and Chuck & I. We’re going to miss these good friends and the Q buffet….especially the chocolate fountain!
With everyone getting ready to leave the Yuma Foothills area, Chuck & I decided to host a Happy Hour. It has been a pretty hot week with temperatures up to 90 during most afternoons but today was just perfect for our outdoors gathering. Temps were in the 70’s with a nice breeze. The group included, in front; Chuck & I, Dianne Gruelle, Patsy Cook, Joey Christensen and Linda Troyer. In Back; Maryanne & Larry (our lot neighbors) Bea & Ken Marler, Frank Gruelle, Bruce & Nancy Butler, Rey & Loretta Armstrong, Jenny & Dan Sheppard, Darlene & Ben Frint, Don Troyer and Carl Christensen. With wonderful food brought and shared by all, we enjoyed a great afternoon of friendship.
